Rimouski wins again ... Jung interview ... Fadden's streak stopped by Wright's club ... Tokarski and Spokane fading?
Shorthanded Admirals lose a heartbreaker.

Blair Jones was the game's second star.
Norfolk again was forced to sign rentals from the local ECHL club in order to fill out their roster. Tonight, it was a trio of players from the Reading Royals who got to be Admirals for a game.

Spokane Chiefs 4 @ Seattle Thunderbirds 2
G Dustin Tokarski, SPO: Win, 34 saves on 36 shots
Season totals: 48 GP, 31-15-0-2, 1.94 GAA, .937 sv%, 7 shutouts
Tokarski got revenge on Calvin Pickard and Seattle for a recent loss and set career high for wins in the process. Seattle had beaten Spokane 3-0 on February 20. Drayson Bowman (Carolina) had two goals for the Chiefs. Spokane would need a miracle to catch Tri-City for first in the US Division and second in the conference (10 points back), and are more concerned about holding onto the three seed as theyâ€™re just three points ahead of Kelowna. Theyâ€™ll play Seattle (5th â€“ 67 points) or Kamloops (6th â€“ 66 points) in the first round.
